Most advice on importing csv files seems to assume users are on Windows, not Mac and many hours of effort has not helped this noobie to figure out the Mac setup and paths to import csv files to Blender text window. So I'm thinking just create a big string as below outside Blender and paste into Blender Python text window and then program a way to convert this string to a list(lines of data) of lists(variables). Does this make sense? Simple enough but somewhat defeatist!
CSV FILE 5 LINES
(REAL DAT WILL BE 1000+ LINES)
MANUALLY CONVERT TO A LONG STRING
PASTE INTO BLENDER
Because the script below doesn't work
import os import bpy blendPath = /Users/dickmeehan/Desktop fileName = "xyzevents.csv" # name of the csv which is on Desktop txt = open(blendPath + fileName, "r") # open the file to read quakeTxt = txt.read() # read the entire file into a string txt.close() # close the file print(quakeTxt)
